Which oil to use??? Need your opinion!

Hi friends!

I know this thread might be a bit boring for some of you, but as I'm on buying the oil for my 33, I thought to have some advice from you first, before going for one of the following oils:

-Castrol Magnatec Professional A3 10W40
-Agip SINT2000 A3, B3,B4 10W40

which one do you recommend to go for???? I have tried Castrol and it's good, but I have never tried Agip before.

I want the best for my engine.
Pls give me an option...

Had a 33 1.7 QV

Heard some varying reviews about the magnatec for the old boxers.
Agip is recommended by alfa.


Benefits for your dealership

So many threads on this forum. read around.
What's your engine like?
What's your boxer model?

10W/40 is a good choice for all round performance.

I've used Motul with good results.
Now I have Havoline 5W/40, with hydraulic lifter addivitive due to a recent ticking noise that I'm trying to eliminate.
Engine runs cooler with 40 than 50 viscosity.

If you're using Castrol now and you are happy with just continue using it.
